I just now figured out that we don't have a thread for MUD!

My lawn care article started off as a how to I wrote for the MUD Project back in 1994 or so.  When the web came along I pushed it out to the web.  Since there wasn't much stuff on the web back then, it got a lot of traffic. 

I recently led a hugelkultur workshop through MUD. 

They have a kickass tool library that seems to have evolved to being the primary function of MUD. 

All of their stuff is at http://mudproject.ning.com/

We have learned a lot from MUD & the tool library is such a wonderful idea!

I just heard that nobody is allowed to work at mud for more than a year.  That seems odd. 

Can anybody confirm that?

I took a great workshop at MUD at the beginning of the season on starting a garden. One thing we touched on that I was a little confused about was exactly what the "lasagna" method of creating a bed entails. I know you use cardboard and compost and layer them directly over the weeds and soil. Do you plant above the cardboard? How long must you wait for it to deteriorate? If someone could explain in a bit more detail I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Effective September 2010, MUD's sustainable living newsletter Backyard Culture, will be published as a monthly e-newsletter.  Replacing the MUD monthly email updates will be a newsletter full of info about MUD (as usual), along with expanded sections regarding featured tools, sustainable living tips, recipes, and more!

Contact MUD to subscribe! To view this month's newsletters, go here: http://api.ning.com/files/ZriXcBLqIx9L1nVwYylJEFaLGSJcCDCc3TWe69EPqNUlJXCnhrT4jYrXOXspWeYGLPK3qw-lK71LZjOErp1ocwymJkuEosLI/MUDSeptember2010newsletter.pdf.
Feel free to share with folks who might like to know more about MUD, or just how to make fantastic tarragon chicken salad (see recipe in Sept. newsletter)!

This topic is covered a bit in podcast 017

This podcast covers a LOT of different topics!

As mentioned at the beginning of the podcast: email signup.

We start off reviewing the movie "Food Matters".  The premise is that many diseases can be resolved by food choices.  And this has been discussed several times at the forums.  A good start is my thread on eliminating medication with polyculture; and the thread about beating  cancer

We talk about raw food; local food; the missoula urban demonstration project; composting toilets; outhouse; urine diversion; women peeing outdoors; hugelkultur; rain barrels; greywater; commercial compost; art ludwig; pee powered cars; jean pain technique; poop beasts.

I think it's great that they have a truck up for use when people need it.
